Can a gas meter be moved?

I plan to add a sunroom off of my kitchen. The foundation is already in place to support the frame, but there is a gas meter on the exterior wall of the kitchen. Can I have a pro move the meter to another location, or is it possible to encase it and the gas company to put in a remote location for reading the meter? (Something like the water meter has)

You certainly could choose either option.  I would recommend a call to your local utility first and see what they recommend.  I am sure you are not the first customer they have had to encounter this problem and they may have a preferred solution.
